Botulinum toxin type A and botulinum toxin type B are both purified substances, a drug made from a neurotoxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum called botulinum toxin.
It is used medically to treat certain muscular conditions and cosmetically remove wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing muscles. Once the muscle is weaken it can’t contract itself and therefore it diminishes your unwanted facial wrinkles.
Botox is mostly used temporarily to erase or reduce horizontal forehead lines, vertical frown lines and crow’s-feet.
The result usually last during 6-9 months but sometimes it lasts shorter and sometimes a little longer.
It is possible if you keep the treatments up at regular intervals the treatments can start to last longer as botox makes the muscle slightly smaller but this doesn’t work for everyone. The best is to make sure it doesn’t totally go away before you re-treat however Botox always prevent your wrinkles from getting worse while is acting.
Botox is not performed under general or local anaesthetic and there is no need to rest afterwards so you can perfectly incorporate in your daily routine if you would like to do so.
